It is with sad thoughts that we share  the passing of  our dear friend and well known WOCN Judy Papen.

Judy lived a long and colorful life that spanned not only Florida but round the country. Besides working at Bayfront Medical Center, Judy also worked for SSI (Support Systems International now Hill-Rom) while living in FL.  Judy moved to Irvine, CA in the early 1990’s, and  worked with ET Consultants a group of 3 ET nurses  who contracted with local hospitals, nursing homes and  home health agencies. Judy assisted with the first SAWC conference in Long Beach, CA in 1988 and remained on the SAWC Hospitality Committee.  While she lived in California, she served as the President of Pacific Coast Region.

After many years of working with ET Consultants Judy joined Kendall (Tyco / Coviden). After Kendall, she joined Coloplast as the Clinical Regional Manager.  Judy co-authored a chapter on “Skin and Wound Assessment and Management of Pain” in the Chronic Wound Care: A Clinical Source Book for Healthcare Professional.  Judy moved back to Largo, FL to be close to her brother and his family and  joined Molnlycke, where she worked until she retired.  Sadly, Judy passed away on September 30th  at home with her family after a brave battle with breast and lung cancer. We’ll miss you Judy, may you rest in peace.
